Temperance – Gaia

Gaia

[Verse 1]
We were meant to make you rise
But like fools we slowly let you die
We were there when the green was turned to stone
When from viridian into grey we changed your tone

[Verse 2]
We've been watching empires grow
While their walls slowly smothered your soul
With tubes and dams we blocked your flow
From your veins to your heart we took control

[Chorus]
Time and only time will tell us
How much we've gone wrong
But still there must be hope
To change this world
Gaia, please, forgive us
For the senseless pain we've caused
May tomorrow come
And spare our souls

[Verse 3]
Will our children see the sun?
Will they really learn much more than what we've done?
Will we ever start to think?
There will be an end to the waste of our gift

[Chorus]
Time and only time will tell us
How much we've gone wrong
But still there must be hope
To change this world
Gaia, please, forgive us
For the senseless pain we've caused
May tomorrow come
And spare our souls

[Bridge]
With the fire inside, we should never surrender, but believe
With the fire inside, we should never surrender, but believe

[Chorus]
Time and only time will tell us
How much we've gone wrong
But still there must be hope
To change this world
Gaia, please, forgive us
For the senseless pain we've caused
May tomorrow come
And spare our souls
We were meant to make you rise
